Three of us ate here around 5:00 pm but definitely gets busy later. The service is good. This is a Lebanese restaurant which was new for us. We had no idea what to order so we ordered a sampler for (3) at $88.00. The food just kept coming and coming. Good food and good value. Also had good Mohito's!

I am normally not a big fan of ordering chicken dishes in restaurants. I feel like chicken is just chicken, and you can get chicken anywhere. However, when I ate here last week with a friend, we ordered a platter that had chicken shawarma and beef kebabs. And the chicken was by far the tastier of the two meats! We... More

Usually superb Middle Eastern food but occasionally less than stellar. If at the Causeway location the views and ambience make up for it! The in town location fine too, menu identical, but usually busier than Causeway location so perhaps service and food slightly less than should be.

Despite the dizzying music, the food is solid and it's an all around favorite when visiting Panama. Let the owner help you order.

We visited here for lunch and had the 'set' meal for four. I think it would have fed six! The variety of dishes was superb, the variety of tastes, textures and foodstuffs made every course a feast and a pleasure. My only regret was that I ate only one meal here. If you stay at the Marriott this is on... More

We like this restaurant a lot as it has great food and the ambiance at night is very inviting . Have eaten there several times and it was fantastic every time. Very popular.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Panama Marriott, which is right across the street from Beirut. We noticed there were always lots of people there, and it seemed pretty lively. Also, the hotel staff recommended the restaurant to us, so we figured why not? This place was busy, yet, we were always able to find an employee to take... More

Believe me when I tell you this ... I don't often travel to a particular city just to eat. BUT, both my wife and I would gladly make a stop in Panama City just to eat at Beirut. Outside of Lebanon itself this place has it together; from ambiance to service to food. Simply outstanding. As a restaurateur and chef... More

The food was amazing at the service was even better. The girls do belly dancing all night long and when your done eating you can enjoy a hookia. I don't suggest it for little kids but pre teen and up is fine. It does get a little loud in there but that's half the fun.

I went there with my female friend for dinner and had decent meals (they all came out so quickly though) as well as a couple of mojitos. I thought it was going to be a nice night-out with my friend, but the restaurant started a belly-dance show with quite loud music. We didn't mind it in the beginning because we... More
